XI 3.1 Upgrade ECC 6.0 and BI transport question.


We are upgrading from Business Objects XI R2 to XI 3.1. Is it possible to apply XI 3.1 transports to our production BI and ECC 6.0 prior to upgrading the BOBJ XI R2 SP 2 server. Does BOBJ XI R2 SP 2 work with the XI 3.1 transports applied?

This would allow us to compare test results between the XI R2 production environment and the XI 3.1 test version using production data prior to actually performing the BOBJ server upgrade. Testing would be easier because the test results should be identical.

Can BOBJ XI R2 work against SAP data sources if we apply the XI 3.1 transports to BI and ECC 6.0?

Note: We run reports against SAP by logging onto Business Objects with our SAP BI and ECC 6.0 user ids.
